Abstract

A article in Ethinic and Racial Studies by Walls and Williams makes inferences about religious discrimination in employment from interview data. We question the validity of treating lay people as experts and present large-scale data from two recent surveys and the 2001 Census which suggest that sectarianism is more a social myth than a social reality.
